Stopped in for breakfast. Coffee was weak, and it took about 45 minutes to have our food served. Portions were generous. My scramble lacked flavor however.

From the old fashioned pickup parked out front (driven by full-sized bears, no less!) to the happy wooden bear carvings standing to greet you, this place is classic, slightly rustic Americana at its best. Youngest fascinated by the jukebox. Bears everywhere, very homey and fun....Petunias at every window. Food was excellent, service top notch. Hungry family of teen boys very satisfied, sweet cream pancakes a hit. Portions very generous, and the sausage and bacon were the best! Had a lot of fun reading the bear newspaper/menu.More

On Friday We were seated in the side room at lunch and at first it was ok but then they started piling people in this small area with no mask they sat a large group right next to us! we went in to support this...business but we were very surprised to find that they weren't following guidelines for covid! you should not allow your staff to put that many people in that small area!!!! you are putting a lot of people at risk!More

Wonderful service, amazingly awesome food and portion sizes. Very relaxing environment. I love their Veggie Hash from their fit and focused section, and my kids love their burger baskets and hand made shakes.

My Sister and Dad took us to Black Bear Diner for breakfast and WOW! So much food and very tasty. It was not busy due the Carona Virus scare. The wait staff was great. Portions were so big, we all had a to go box....A great little diner in a quaint little town.More

We have visited this establishment on other trips through town and had no complaints. However, this time the service was terrible. We were seated right away and the hostess took our drink order. We each ordered a water and my boyfriend asked for a cup...of coffee. She only brought us one water and the coffee. We asked again for the other water but she never returned. So when our waitress actually came over we asked her. After placing our order I had to track down our waitress to finally get the water and get the coffee refilled. Then she brought our food and never came back again to see how everything was or if we needed anything else. Was so disappointed. The food was yummy, we had no complaints there but service sucked.More

We had travel across Oregon and the majority of foods we found in Oregon were very salty. Only in this black bear diner we found everything was seasoned right and not too salty! Foods are very great, very homey, and delicious. We stayed in Madras...for few days, and tried out just about everything on the menu and each one of them are great, breakfast and dinner. Their meal size is really huge, we could never finish it.. but otherwise great restaurant! Waitresses are all super friendly and nice.. great atmosphere overall!More
